Man cited for illegal fish

A 20-year-old Coral Gables, Florida man was given a mandatory notice to appear in court citation Saturday for illegally harvesting snook and hogfish.

Middle Keys Marine Deputy Willie Guerra was on patrol near the Long Key Bridge at approximately 3:30 p.m. when he observed Michelle Gardin Hernandez spearfishing.

An inspection of his catch revealed a speared, undersized snook and an undersized, speared hogfish.
